Dear Marsteller family, Our thoughts and prayers are with you as you look forward to seeing your loved one again.
In Christ, The LeChien's.
Today I celebrate the life of my landlord, Spiritual Father and great friend, Glen Marstellar. I've watched this man for several years get so much joy from sharing his faith and bringing others to Christ. His blue eyes would twinkle as he would exclaim "Guess how many people I lead to Christ today?" This was said after his weekly trips to Walmart, Costco and his favorite place, Home Depot. His arthritis and neuropathy kept him from walking again, but it could not stop him from finding new and challenging construction projects to complete around this house- his last one being the arbor with grapes and bench that he created this past spring for me to enjoy right outside my door. Although the stroke in June left him bedridden and housebound, his spirit and love of people and life was not. He continued to faithfully speak scriptures, joke around and occasionally join me in a medley of our favorite hymns. He had a beautiful, soaring, tenor voice and sang with conviction and authority. He showed the truth of how a loving, faithful, Bible-led husband behaves by the way he cared for his bride of 64yrs, whom he affectionately called "His Lady Margaret". There wasn't a request she had that he didn't meet or exceed. I learned so much from this great man of God during our many heart-felt conversations about his life as a contractor, teacher, father and brother by the beautiful waterfall and pool he built. I loved him very, very much and felt honored and loved by him when he called me "His Angel or His Lawyer". Your journey here is done, faithful servant. I'll see you next time at your mansion in heaven. Rest in peace, Mr. Glen. ???
Dear Mrs. Marsteller, Please accept my condolences in the loss of your husband. He was such a kind and caring man and I remember him well. My daughter Cathy Cartmel was good friends with your sweet daughter Jackie, and you and your husband were always so kind to Cathy. May your memories bring you consolation.
